it would help sal's team again but who cares you team gets better. numero uno is what matters be selfish
I guess this is the first time you are posting some sort of analysis that is beyond my team gets better so I commend you for that.
1. Numero Uno is what matters - In Tek's case, he was looking at having a bunch of studly players being thrown back into the pool (from Sal and before you decided to throw a monkey wrench into that idea), and you have the number 2 pick in the draft and should be able to land one of them. Why trade away the pick to Sal again? Not following the logic there. From what I see, landing Millsap who produced 2nd round value last season with a 1st=6th round pick seems like a no brainer.
Also, Numero Uno is the one who wins at the end of the season, not the one with best core (although that definitely helps). Best core = Sal. Team to beat = Sal. So, how does giving him better picks to improve your core and in your case not having a pick until the 3rd=8th round help you become Numero Uno at the end of the season? Seems like you are just stacking the deck against yourself... but I will wait for your helpful and useful response to my question.
